Sounding Off – Cameron Hayley:
What makes the mile-and-a-half Chicago track so unique?
“Chicago is unique because it has that curve down the back straightaway, and the surface is wearing out. It’s getting rougher and rougher. There is a pretty nasty bump in the center of Turns 3 and 4, and we struggled with last year. Overall, I was really comfortable with the race track last year. We ran pretty decent, but all I can remember from Chicago is fuel mileage. We definitely didn’t nail our fuel mileage, ended up running out of gas at the end of the race, and finished 16th. Hopefully, the caution clock will help with that this year.”
